"Of late – as if not every single week these days – too many law enforcement Chiefs Of Police and Sheriffs are opposing concealed carry and second amendment rights on their own initiative. As we know, 2A is the force which protects all other rights. Non-gun owners are beneficiaries of gun rights efforts. Examples are boondoggles such as anti-crime policies which mandate all citizens to comply with greater intrusion, tracking and other unreasonable mandates. I don't know how belligerent the new administration will get on takings of weapons across America, but the fraud of coaxing people to disarm and thereby increase crime statistics is well underway." ...

"One of the hottest retail gifts for this year may be a new gun. Snohomish, Washington, like many small towns in America felt that many of their voices went unheard on November 4th and now they are worried about eroding constitutional rights."

"Snohomish is just like any other small community across the nation in that they believe in God, country and strong family values. One other ideal that seems to be emerging in Snohomish is the right to 'keep and bear arms'. There are several gun stores in Snohomish County ..."

"The national buying trend on guns is showing a rush on automatic[sic] weapons and handguns. There are many reasons for this latest upswing in sales ..." ...

A grand jury agreed the shooting was self-defense.

Bolaski will face aggravated assault charges for allegedly hitting Tamburello with the gun after the shooting.

"reason has been on the gun beat since the very first issue of the magazine appeared 40 years ago. In 'Violence in the U.S.—the Reversal of Cause and Effect,' founding editor Lanny Friedlander described the political reaction to the assassination of Bobby Kennedy: 'Gun laws, we find them screeching, from every radio received, gun laws, gun laws, gun laws! Make it illegal for anyone to own a gun and enforce that law at the point of a gun. ... Forget that it leaves the victim unarmed, but leaves the victimizer free to operate. Forget that it makes self-protection a crime, but leaves the criminal better off than he was before. Forget that an assassin can make a gun or steal a gun or even use another type of weapon. Forget all that.'" ...
 

Obama asks an odd question

"One particular question in the Obama questionnaire for prospective appointees has raised eyebrows around the country, with good reason."

"... Question 59: 'Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used ...'"

"Advocates for gun rights took the question as a sign that the incoming administration is openly hostile to the idea of gun ownership and will seek to abridge Second Amendment rights, as they have feared all along."

"But in the context of the form, it is more a sign that the people asking that question don't know much about firearms." ...

"Pennsylvania gun owners dodged a bullet when lawmakers failed to enact legislation that would have levied a 5-cent tax on each shell and required encoding ammunition with serial numbers and registering those numbers in a statewide database."

"Introduced in February, the bill remains in the state House Judiciary Committee and will die at the end of the session on Sunday. But it could be reintroduced in January, and gun advocates expect to fight it again next year."

"It's part of a growing effort nationally to target ammunition as one way to stem gun violence." ...

"Military authorities last week demonstrated a strong resolve to deal with the unrest in the troubled Niger Delta region by handing down life sentences and demotions to soldiers implicated in the sale of arms from the Nigerian Army armoury to militants. The soldiers who appeared before a General Court Martial had racked up a N100 million windfall from the sale of over 7, 000 military weapons to a militant group, Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND ..."

"It is, however, scandalous to believe that this nefarious act had been going on undetected since 2000 and perhaps would have continued if the MEND leader, Henry Okah, had not been arrested in Angola and repatriated to Nigeria. ..." ...

"With a new president who takes office in January 2009 and the thoughts of possible changes in firearms laws, local firearms dealers have noticed an increase in the sales of weapons usually large caliber and military assault-styled weapons. Fears of a change in the law were evident across the country after the election of Barack Obama who, according to reports, will not attempt to make drastic changes in gun laws."

"Warren Duncan of Volunteer Ordinance Works said a rumor mill and the 'great conspiracy theory' which had fed the increase in sales has been generated at gun shows and relates to the Second Amendment right to bear arms and the Fourth Amendment right to protect against illegal search and seizure. ..." ...

"There's a new day dawning, and we'd better prepare ourselves for the impending liberal onslaught."

"Understand the liberal loons feel vindicated and believe the American people have finally come out of the closet and shown their far-left colors by electing the most liberal president ever to grace the White House colonnade. ..."

"The liberal 'to do list' is long, and they've languished in the air of conservatism long enough ..." ...

"Next is the dismantling of our right to bear arms. The NRA levels that Obama is a 'serious threat to our Second Amendment liberties' and opposes four of the five Supreme Court justices who affirmed an individual's right to keep and bear arms." ...

"But thank you, Rep. Pitts, for this tax free holiday on gun purchases."

"Your symbolic support of the Second Amendment is touching, and we're sure it says a lot about your commitment to preserving this basic American freedom."

"The Montana voters deserve congratulations for giving a win to McCain and Palin in spite of the pile of money spent in the state by the Obama campaign ..."

"Montana folks recognized the real Obama by his documented liberal record in spite of his rhetoric portraying himself to be a 'moderate.' Sen. Obama's middle name shouldn't be Hussein. He should be Barack Socialist Obama."

"Gun owners around the country and in Montana did not buy into his declaration of gun rights."

"The flyer on Obama's Second Amendment rights position distributed by the Democratic Party was not believable."

"No wonder gun sales are booming, no pun intended." ...
